PATF’s Annual Photo Contest


We want to highlight a PA statewide non-profit organization called the Pennsylvania Assistive Technology Foundation (PATF). Through education, advocacy, and financing opportunities, PATF assists individuals of all ages, disabilities, and income levels to acquire assistive technology devices and services to support independence and improve the quality of their lives.

The website offers valuable resources and information about assistive technology funding, vendors, financial education, and loans for assistive technology needs. The credit-building, low-interest loan options and grants offered through PATF can be used to finance the range of assistive technology from smart devices to home modifications for accessibility. Included on their website are a comprehensive assistive technology funding guide and money management teaching tools.
